  Meaning of Flowers – 
Understand the Mystical "Language of Flowers"
   
       
 

Flowers are universally accepted as a symbol of expression. The thousands of varieties of flowers that exist all over the world have, over time, come to stand for something depending on their color, fragrance and shape. In the early 1800s, flowers went from being garden plants to a form of communication.

Presenting flowers for various occasions has become a norm. Flowers are used to express good times, convey joy or warmth; they are also used to express sorrow. The connotation of the flowers changes with choice of flowers presented.

Flowers are used as decoration in times of celebration, for example at weddings. They also have the exceptional quality to light up any room in which they are placed- in a house, or an office. Flowers are also used as a mark of respect at somber occasions.

Today, people gift flowers as a gesture and project their emotions through the characteristics of the flowers, thus almost creating a special language for flowers that is unique in nature. Different flowers imply different meanings. Perhaps the classic and therefore clichéd form of expression is the red rose, which has always signified love.

Flowers can be presented as bouquets of well-manicured stems wrapped in beautiful paper tied with a ribbon or in a casual simple bunch of mixed flowers. They can also be presented in the form of elaborate arrangements of exotic flowers. But sometimes, a single stem is all it takes to express a deep emotion.

Conveying through flowers is a form of communication that can be far richer than expressing oneself vocally. The language of flowers is self-explanatory and people use it to show their passion.

The unique and wonderful thing about the language of flowers is that it can help those who find it difficult to express their emotions. Today, for every emotion, there is a flower to help communicate your feelings.

While many people today are able to express their feelings with ease, some people still find it hard to vocalise their emotions. The unique and wonderful thing about the language of flowers is that it can help those who find it difficult to express their emotions. The mere act of giving a red rose can help you say "I love you" while giving a bunch of flowers to a mother on mother's day is another way of saying "you're really special". For every emotion, there is a flower to help communicate your feelings. Flowers also have the unique ability to light up any room in which they appear, whether in a house, or an office. Just like pictures, flowers can tell a thousand words. So use the mysterious language of flowers, and the beautiful meaning of flowers to do the speaking for you.
